black ink

Promarkers - Pastel Blue, China Blue, Midnight Blue, Baby Pink, Berry Red, Ruby, Apple, Grass, Gold, Orange, Umber

 1. Matt a layer of pale blue snowflake paper measuring 9.5cm x 14cm onto a piece of blue "present" paper measuring 10.5cm x 15cm with double sided tape.

 2. Stamp the snowmen with black ink onto a piece of white card measuring 8.5cm x 9cm.

3.Colour the large hat with Pastel Blue Promarker.

 14. Colour the box lid with China Blue.

 15. Add shading with Midnight Blue.

 16. Colour around the inside edges of the snowmen and shade the ribbon with Pastel Blue.

17. Colour the "coal" with Umber.

18. Matt this panel onto a piece of blue "present" paper measuring 9cm x 9.5cm  and attach to the card front at an angle with double sided tape. Add Glitter Glue below the snowmen and dots to resemble snowflakes.
